After the great success of the previous editions, which saw the participation of dozens of companies (including sponsors, partners and exhibitors), as well as speakers and hundreds of visitors (except for the fourth edition, held in full-digital format), Smart City Now – Conference & Expo returns, scheduled for 15 and 16 June 2021. This year, too, the event will be held in digital mode.

Now in its fifth edition, Smart City Now is the place where companies and local public administrations meet to discuss urban innovation issues and find the most effective solutions in the field of Smart Cities and Communities. In an ever-changing context, Lombardy and its communities are leading the way in urban innovation to promote a vision that places the citizen and public services at the heart of a truly smart city.

In this sense, the Smart Cities & Communities Cluster of the Lombardy Region stands alongside companies and local authorities as a facilitator and guarantor of this transformation, in which technologies can be the catalyst for innovation at the service of the territory, public administrations and the quality of life of citizens.

The Techinnova incubator and the Innogrow accelerator will be present at the event as speakers (in the person of Dr. Roggeri, CEO & Founder of Techinnova) and exhibitors, presenting a series of case studies of successful companies that have undertaken the path of acceleration of Innogrow and / or received incubation by Techinnova.

Smart City Now will also be an opportunity for Techinnova to announce the “winners” of the XLR8 contest, organised by the incubator through the Innogrow accelerator and aimed at the most deserving innovation talents. In particular, Techinnova’s intervention will take place between 3.00 p.m. and 4.30 p.m., according to the following schedule:

  • Presentation of Techinnova S.p.A. and Innogrow (15′);
  • Presentation of two successful use-cases: InfinityHub and Pradella Sistemi (15’+15′);
  • Presentation of the three deserving companies of the acceleration programs (15’+15′);
  • Conclusions and final considerations.
